Boy Scout Troop 465 Hickory Flat, GA



Membership Renewal (Recharter)

All youth and adult membership renewals for 2023 are due by the end of November. If you or your youth would like to continue scouting with the troop, please let us know by paying your annual dues.

One difference from prior recharters is that all outstanding balances must be paid before your recharter can be processed. This is part of closing out the books for the fiscal year. Account statements will soon be sent out. If there are any confusing amounts in that statement, let's discuss.

Membership dues are higher for both National dues and for the troop. Troop budget for 2022 was not sufficient and things were tight several times during the year. There has not been any mandatory fundraising activities for years, but we would be forced to consider them for 2023 or raise dues. We chose to raise dues to align with our expenses.

Dues payment can be made online, or in person. The Troop Committee has set the 2023 dues at: $222/scout and $90/adult. As always, financial assistance is available for families that need it.

Questions about Membership Renewal can be directed to Ken Orris, cchair@troop465.org.

The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America, incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916, is to:

Provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character.

Train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship.

Develop personal fitness.

How you can get involved:

JOIN as a youth member with Troop 465.

VOLUNTEER as a Troop Committee member or Assistant Scoutmaster

GIVE to 465 Alumni Inc. to support Troop 465's sponsor.

  Serving youth for over 50 years, Troop 465 has had a proud heritage of molding boys into men according to the criteria listed above. Our Scoutmaster Emeritus, George Lingefelt, say's "If you want boys to become leaders, you have to train them and then let them lead", and thus began our "boy-lead troop" mind set. Jason Norred is our current Scoutmaster and passes these skills on. In fact, Scoutmaster Norred is only our 8th Scoutmaster since 1963.

Since 1996, the Troop Sponsor has been 465 Alumni, Inc., dba Friends of Troop 465, a non-profit organization specifically enacted to support Troop 465 both financially and philosophically. Troop 465 has a permanent Scout Hut, on over 3 acres, thanks to the generosity and foresight of 465 Alumni, Inc.

Troop 465 is unique because of the tremendous support from our members and their families. If you would like more information about joining troop 465, please click here.
